"The lockdown has demonstrated 3 things:

* Our economy collapses as soon as it stops selling useless stuff to over-indebted people

* It is perfectly possible to reduce pollution

* The lowest paid people in the country are essential to its functioning"

@meganeko agree on the last two, but I didn't notice any economy collapse during lockdowns?

@IngaLovinde @meganeko

*speculation* markets collapse as soon as they stop selling useless stuff to over-indebted people

@meganeko also:

— society/capitalism will never do the "right" thing for long-term benefits if it reduces short-term benefits. This is why we will never address climate change beyond band-aids
